EFT Tapping trains your brain to respond to stress and challenges from a place of peace and calm instead of panic. By lightly stimulating acupoints around the body, tapping is likened to psychological acupuncture but without the needles.
By combining psychology techniques with oriental practices, tapping allows you the emotional freedom to experience greater joy, clarity and ease. Tapping, also known as EFT or Emotional Freedom Techniques, is an evidence-based relaxation technique that works on a mind and body level. Tapping uses psychology techniques such as cognitive therapy and exposure therapy together with tapping percussively on meridian (the body's energy system) end points. By simultaneously focusing on negative thoughts, feelings and emotions, this combined technique sends a calming signal to the amygdala in your brain, rewiring it to stay calm and relaxed, when the stress-response would otherwise be activated.
Tapping can be used to treat a wide range of conditions and ailments, including stress, anxiety and trauma, as well as physical pain, hormonal imbalances, phobias and fears. Tapping can also help with addiction, food cravings, weight loss, body confidence, immunity, memory and fertility. Whatever you’ve been struggling with, EFT Tapping can provide rapid and lasting relief from a wide range of problems.
Tapping can also enhance wellbeing in children by managing big emotions like worry, fear, sadness and anger. And in the classroom environment, EFT can help children optimise learning by managing stress, anxiety and behavioural challenges.
Whether you’re new to tapping or not, your therapist will make you feel comfortable throughout. You’ll start with an initial 'discovery session', where your therapist will explain how the tapping technique works and help you craft some goals. She will then guide you through some 'resourcing' techniques that will act as an anchor for you to come back to whenever you need. You’ll then do multiple rounds of tapping, recording notes and assessing your progress as you go. The actual tapping itself is self-applied and done fully clothed. You may choose to do it sitting up or lying down—however you feel most comfortable.
To maximise the benefits, after the session, your therapist will send you a recording of your personalised tapping meditation that you may continue as a home practice as often as you like. Tapping treatment can be held in person, over the phone or via Zoom. A session usually takes between 60 and 90 minutes. To maximise the outcome, more than one session may be needed. We also offer an appointment-free option where we work with you via email.
